Artists are Present

Artists are Present is an initiative created by ASCUS that aims to place artists at the heart of scientific conferences. Through this initiative we work in partnership with conferecnes to enable attandence and participation of artists with an interest in and/or a pactice that is sympathtic to the content and themes being presented. If you are running, or are involved with a scientific conference and are interested in working with us through this initiative, opening the doors to artists, then please get in touch: Scroll down to read more about the initiative…

Artists are Present aims to:

  • Create opportunities for artists to engage with science and the scientists attending a particular conference towards forming new work, ideas and potentially new collaborations fusing art and science.
  • Support art-science knowledge exchange
  • Share creative approaches to current scientific research offering new and different perspectives on science to scientists
  • Highlight ways in which art-science practices can form innovative approaches to public engagement
